EEAA enforces member engagement

Special interest forums boost knowledge exchange

Gwen Kaufmann, m+a - Monday, August 19, 2019    


The Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia (EEAA) has launched a new series of special interest forums that will provide greater opportunity for year round engagement for members to exchange valuable industry knowledge and address the key issues facing the industry. EEAA chief executive, Joyce DiMascio, said the forum series will deliver a new targeted communication platform for EEAA member categories to share industry knowledge across a range of issues of common professional interest. "The special interest forums will provide an opportunity for members of our community to drill down into the key issues and opportunities facing the industry. In addition to our major annual headline events, the forums will serve as an additional platform for greater year round engagement within the member community," DiMascio said. The first forum is scheduled to take place August 20, 2019 at HostCo, in the grounds of Sydney University, followed by a networking session with the wider EEAA member community. Following the Organiser and Association Organiser Forum, the EEAA is planning to run a special interest forum for audio visual suppliers and event technology suppliers to the exhibition industry. These Forums will run over the next six months, dates to be confirmed.
